Trump supporter Steve Cortes loses it after Rick Wilson brings up war crimes prosecutions

Published

on

The spokesperson for the “official” pro-Trump SuperPAC was admonished twice by an MSNBC anchor on Saturday night during a segment on impeachment that quickly went off the rails.

MSNBC anchor Joy Reid was anchoring a Saturday night special titled, “the impeachment trial of Donald Trump.”

Her panel included Rick Wilson, the author of the bestselling 2018 book Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever and Steve Cortes, the spokesperson for America First PAC.

Wilson explained why Republican senators refuse to stand up to Trump.

“These guys live in absolute abject terror of Donald Trump,” Wilson said. “They don’t want a primary, they don’t want Trump to tweet about them, they don’t want Trump’s crazy people to come out of the woodwork when he says ‘congressman so-and-so doesn’t support me enough.’ And they don’t want their lives to turn into a burning Trumpian hell.”

“He is a president who happens to be in the Oval Office right now, but he’s the first thug,” he argued. “This is not a guy who inspires love and inspiration, he inspires terror. And that’s working for them right now, that works for this White House, and the reason –”

At that point, Cortes interrupted to encourage Wilson to attend a Trump rally.

“Thanks, Steve,” Wilson replied. “If I want to do that, I’ll just watch Nuremberg videos.”

And that’s when things got heated.

Cortes had to be admonished by Reid to not shout over Wilson. Later in the segment, she lectured Cortes for complaining about Wilson’s characterizations while supporting Trump, who sent this tweet on Saturday morning.

According to a report from the Daily Beast, Donald Trump is directing members of his coronavirus task force to make sure they hammer at the Democrats when discussing progress the administration is making to combat the spread on the growing pandemic.

On Friday night, at a rally in South Carolina, Trump set the tone by pointedly blaming the Democrats and telling rallygoers, "The Democrats are politicizing the coronavirus. They're politicizing it. They don't have any clue," while also tying the growing health crisis to building his wall, by stating, "Border security is also health security.”

Jared Kushner vows there will be ‘no drama’ in Trump’s second term: ‘It’s high-competence’

Published

Jared Kushner vowed on Friday that a second term from his father-in-law, President Donald Trump,  would be both efficient and drama-free.

The senior White House adviser claimed that Trump's re-election campaign was running smoothly, much as the president's second term supposedly would, while speaking with organizer Matt Schlapp at the Conservative Political Actions Conference (CPAC).

"The way that you see the campaign being run, there's no leaks. There's no drama. I would say it's high-competence, low-drama," Kushner said. "Everything is very efficiently run, and I think that's exemplary of how President Trump would run his second term in office."

William Barr promotes Christian tyranny in latest speech

Published

on

I’ve said it before, and if you’re reading this, you’ve very likely heard the same thing darkly muttered among liberals and progressives if you haven’t said it yourself: I never thought anything could possibly make me miss Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III. And yet, with his willingness to throw away our norms, checks, and balances, to politicize the Justice Department, to sacrifice the rule of law itself on the altar of Trump—current Attorney General William Barr has done it. As authoritarian as he was, invoking Romans 13 to defend the Trump administration’s indefensibly inhumane policy of caging children separated from their asylum-seeking parents, Sessions had at least enough genuine concern for the rule of law to recuse himself from the Mueller investigation, against the tweeter-in-chief’s explicit wishes.
